    Unhappy Import of XML files using SQL Loader


    We have an import script running on a Unix server, using SQL*Loader to import files with information into a database table in Oracle 9. Now we want to be able to import XML formatted files instead of "text" files. Can we still use SQL*Loader to do this or should we use a different tool.

    Can anyone give me a hint?

    We are using Oracle 9, should that be a difference?

    We don't want XML in the database, just normal number, varchar datatypes as they are today. What should the steps be to be able to use SQL*Loader importing the XML formatted files into a database table?

    Are there any good examples of this somewhere?
